SEYMOUR, Conn. (WTNH) — Route 67 reopened on Monday morning in Seymour after a water main break caused it to close on Sunday, according to the Seymour Police Department.

The town learned about the break at about 12:30 p.m., according to the city. The break was in the area of Day Street and Washington Avenue.

Officials said the break happened in a 16-inch line. Aquarion Water Company has shut off water to an unspecified number of residents. As of Monday morning, a boil water advisory is in effect as well.

This means that customers in Seymour, Beacon Falls, and Oxford are at risk of having contaminated drinking water, the water company said. So, officials recommend that as a precaution, residents boil their water before consuming it, or use bottled water instead.

No one from the company has stated how long the effect may be in place. You can check on the status of different alerts and outages posted by Aquarion online by clicking here.
